what kind of people are these?


How painful for this mother and family, having lost their son, their ONLY CHILD, a husband and father, to
be treated with such disdain and disrespect by the government of the United States.

She CRIED ON OBAMA'S SHOULDERS and he seemed distant and aloof.

"I cried on Obama's shoulder. And he -- then he'd kind of looked off
into the distance. So that was worthless to me."

Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice ALL lied and misled her and she is VERY angry.

Imagine among the last words you see from your son ... "assuming we don't die tonight. We saw one of our 'police' that guard the compound taking pictures."

Pat Smith wants answers and when a politician or bureaucrat says "trust me" it just won't don't any more. She has ceased to trust them and for good reason. They lied!

To think they looked this woman in the eyes in the presence of her dead son and lied.

To THINK that Hillary Clinton stood next to the bodies of Christopher Stevens and the other three Americans so brutally murdered and LIED! And these people CONTINUE to lie and COVER UP to try to cling to the reins of power.

To THINK Obama and his administration would blame their incompetence on a single American "film-maker" for some amateurish film no one saw and, in effect, put a target on HIS back for the rest of his life.

Kudos to CNN and Anderson Cooper for another random act of journalism in this gut-wrenching interview with Pat Smith:

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN ANCHOR: Erin, thanks. Good evening, everyone. We begin
tonight "Keeping Them Honest," with a mother who is now asking the toughest
question any mom ever can. Why is my son dead? That is all Pat Smith
wants to know. Her son, Sean Smith, was one of the four Americans killed on
September 11th in that terror attack on American facilities in Benghazi, Libya.
Sean Smith, who is one of the computer specialists at the American consulate
there. A month later -- a month after she watched her son's casket come off a
cargo plane, a month after she says everyone promised her answers, everyone all
the way up to the president of the United States. She says she is still waiting
to hear. Still waiting for answers. Waiting for a call.

Congress held hearings today. We'll talk about that shortly, but first, my conversation with
Sean Smith's mom, Pat.


COOPER: Pat, I appreciate
you being with us. And I'm just so sorry for your loss. What do you
want people to know about your son, about Sean?

BENGHAZI ATTACK: Well, God. He was my only child. And he was good, he was good
at what he did, he'd loved it.

COOPER: He loved working with computers?

SMITH: Computers, radios. He was good at what he did.

Was that something he had done as a kid? I mean how did -- did he always -- was
he always good with computer?

SMITH: Well, when he was a kid, computers
weren't out yet. And --


And then they were out and he
-- I got a computer and he started playing with them and he started showing me
how you could build a flame thrower and -- by just watching a computer and then
told you how to do it. So that's how it started.

COOPER: He lived in the
Netherlands. Were you able to communicate a lot? I mean he'd served in a lot of
very dangerous places. Did you always know where he was?

SMITH: I always
knew where he was when he told me. For example, this time he was in the Hague
and that is where he was stationed. He was supposed to be there for about two
years. And then he would transfer some place else. I did not know he was going
to be in Libya.

COOPER: Did he ever talk about the dangers that came
along with his job? I mean he -- he serve d in Iraq as well.

in fact, he sent me -- I still have it on my computer where he sent me this
thing. He was in working in the palace over there.

COOPER: In Baghdad.

SMITH: And they -- yes, in Baghdad, and he says, got to go, and suddenly
he just disappeared and I said, well, what's happening over there. And he said
listen. And I was listening, and suddenly I heard boom. Where they were shooting
at him.

COOPER: You must have worried a lot.

SMITH: When that
was over. I can't spend my life worrying about it. I accepted what he wanted to

COOPER: I want to play for our viewers some of what President Obama
said about your son when he returned home. Let's watch.


lived to serve. First in the Air Force, then with you at the State Department.
He knew the perils of this calling, from his time in Baghdad. There in Benghazi,
far from home, he surely thought of Heather and Samantha and Nathan, and he laid
down his life in service to us all.

Today, Sean is home.


COOPER: He's mentioning his wife and his children. When you
heard the president say that, what did you think?

SMITH: This is the
first time I heard the president say that.

COOPER: It is really?

SMITH: Yes, he never told -- didn't tell me that. Sean knew he was in a
bunch of scary places. I knew he was in security places. I didn't expect him to
get blown up. I didn't expect him to die. COOPER: Do you feel that you know what
happened or are you still searching for answers? Have you been in contact with
the State Department? Have they reached out to you and given you details of what

SMITH: That's a funny subject. I begged them to tell me what
was -- what happened. I said I want to know all the details, all of the details
no matter what it is, and I'll make up my own mind on it. And everyone of them,
all the big shots over there told me that -- they promised me, they promised me
that they would tell me what happened. As soon as they figure it out.

one, not one person has ever, ever gotten back to me other than media people and
the gaming people.


COOPER: Her son was a big
video gamer.

We are going to have more of my conversation with Pat Smith
after a quick break. She has some very tough words for this administration who
she says has forgotten the promises they made to her the day Sean's body was

Also tonight, the latest on today's congressional hearings
into the attacks. Jill Dougherty and Fran Townsend join us next.


COOPER: We're talking tonight with Pat Smith
whose son Sean Smith was killed in the Libya terror attack. Former Navy SEAL
Glen Doherty was also killed. Today his mother Barbara asked Mitt Romney to stop
invoking her son's name on the campaign stump, quote, "I don't trust Romney,"
she says. "He shouldn't make my son's death part of his political agenda."

Pat Smith did not speak about anyone's political agenda tonight. She is,
however, bitterly, bitterly disappointed with the State Department, the Defense
Department and the White House tonight. You're going to hear shortly about how
the State Department is going to respond to her charges.

But first,
though, more of my conversation with Pat Smith starting with her as yet
unfulfilled search for answers.


told you that they would give you information?

SMITH: You'll love this.
Obama told me. Hillary promised me. Joe Biden -- Joe Biden is a pressure. He was
a real sweetheart. But he also told -- they all told me that -- they promised
me. And I told them please, tell me what happened. Just tell me what happened.

COOPER: So you're still waiting to hear from somebody about what
happened to your son? About what they know? Or even what they don't know.

SMITH: Right. Right. Officially yes. I told them, please don't give me
any baloney that comes through with this political stuff. I don't want political
stuff. You can keep your political, just tell me the truth. What happened. And I
still don't know. In fact, today I just heard something more that he died of
smoke inhalation.

COOPER: So you don't even know the cause of death?

SMITH: I don't even know if that's true or not. No, I don't. I don't
know where. I look at TV and I see bloody hand prints on walls, thinking, my
God, is that my son's? I don't know if he was shot. I don't know -- I don't
know. They haven't told me anything. They are still studying it. And the things
that they are telling me are just outright lies.

That Susan Rice, what
-- she talked to me personally and she said, she said, this is the way it was.
It was -- it was because of this film that came out.

COOPER: So she told
you personally that she thought it was a result of that video of the protest?

SMITH: Oh, absolutely. Absolutely. In fact all of them did. All of them
did. Leon Panetta actually took my face in his hands like this and he said,
trust me. I will tell you what happened. And so far, he's told me nothing.
Nothing at all. And I want to know.

COOPER: It's important for you to
know all the details no matter how horrible.


Or no matter how tough they are to hear.

SMITH: Exactly. I told him, if
it's such a secret thing, fine, take me in another room, whisper in my ear what
happened so that I know, and we'll go from there. But no. No, they -- you know,
they treat me like -- at first I was so proud because they were treating me so
nice when I went to that reception. They all came up to me and talked to me and
everything. I cried on Obama's shoulder. And he -- then he'd kind of looked off
into the distance.

So that was worthless to me. I want to know, for
God's sakes. Or for Allah's sake or whoever's sake is there.

deserve -- you deserve answers.

SMITH: I think so. I believe I do. I
believe it. It's my son. I had him for the first -- I told Obama personally, I
said, look, I had him for his first 17 years and then he went into the service,
then you got him. And -- I won't say it the way I said it. BUT I SAID YOU SCREWED UP, YOU DIDN'T DO A GOOD JOB, I LOST MY SON. And they said, we'll get
back to you. We -- I promise, I promise you. I will get back to you.

Some of the administration have said well, you know, we're investigating, we're
still trying to find out answers. But you just want --

SMITH: They still

COOPER: You would still want them to contact you and at least keep
you apprised of the investigation, of where things are. You would think that
they would at least do that.

SMITH: That would be so nice. That would at
least acknowledge that I have a right to know something, something other than,
we're checking up on it, or trust me. I like that one the best of all. Trust me.
I will let you know.

Well, I don't trust you anymore. I don't trust you
anymore. You -- I'm not going to say lied to me, but you didn't tell me and you

COOPER: Pat Smith, thank you.


I repeat.

What kind of people are these?

These elitist blowhard masterminds of the ruling class couldn't approach Pat Smith's (or the average American's) level of integrity and importance if they stood on top the Capitol Dome.
